Here we give you a snapshot of some of what the Priests for Life family of ministries is doing in these days. We thank you for your support and invite you to get to know us better!!

Fr. Frank Pavone has begun planning for the National Prayer Service (NationalPrayerService.com) to take place in Washington DC on the morning of the March for Life. Senior officials in the Presidential Administration will be invited, and it will once again be the premier interdenominational prayer event associated with the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.

Fr. Frank urged Priests for Life followers in Georgia to vote pro-life in the high profile Congressional race that took place on June 20th. The pro-life candidate, Karen Handel, won that race!

Fr. Frank is also helping to facilitate a coordinated effort among pro-life groups to call on their people to urge the US Senate to keep taxpayer money away from the abortion industry. The next few weeks will be crucial in this effort.

Fr. Frank is working on a project to urge all pastors to publicize alternatives to abortion. The collaboration of Good Counsel Homes and Heartbeat International -- with their resources and hotlines numbers -- will be central to this project.

Fr. Frank Pavone has been preparing for upcoming presentations at the National Right to Life Convention as well as at the Catholic Marketing Network, the Night Vision Festival, and the Blackstone Fellowship talk he gives to law students from around the country. He has also, in conjunction with the Silent No More team, been reaching out to Olympic Gold Medalist Sanya Richards-Ross, who reveals in her memoirs about her abortion, and how she wants to help others heal from it.

Fr. Frank has been preparing daily Facebook broadcasts and doing other radio interviews, as well as consulting with various experts about the construction of the television and radio studios in the new Priests for Life headquarters in Florida.

Fr. Frank has been in close contact with the Trump Administration and with our allies in Congress to assist in the defunding Planned Parenthood, and also to prepare for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would protect the lives of children in the womb who can feel pain.

Kevin also has a powerful article coming out on the Pewsitter news service entitled  A Solidarity of the Broken Hearted -My Journey from the Storms of Promiscuity, Abortion, and HIV to the Safe Harbor of God's Mercy. His recent article on the father of abortion pioneer Dr Bernard Nathanson received over one-thousand likes and shares on Facebook, The Sins of the Father: The Role of an Abusive Tyrannical Patriarch in the Legalization of Abortion in the United States.

Marie Smith and the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues (PNCI) is following actions at both the General Assembly meeting of the Organization of American States in Mexico and at the United Nations, in New York and Geneva, that may attempt to advance access to abortion and collaborating with other pro-life organizations on strategic responses.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato has been in Washington, DC for meetings with pro-life leaders and prayer in front of Planned Parenthood and other local abortion mills.
